This position statement has since been endorsed by the American College of Radiology (ACR), the Canadian Organization of Medical Physics (COMP), the Health Physics Society (HPS), the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR), the Australasian College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM), and the Image Gently Alliance.
